Back to the Future picture

Audio problem: Lorraine comes to see Marty in Doc's garage in 1955 to ask him if he will go to the dance with her. Just before Lorraine moves to the other side of the car from where she walked in, she begins to say something to Marty.

The Karate Kid picture

Audio problem: When Dre is leaving Meiying's violin practice in the auditorium there is a long shot of her playing her violin showing her left side as Dre walks to the exit. The notes she is playing are vibrato - varying the pitch of the notes by rapidly pivoting the finger on the strings - but her hand is perfectly still. Even though you can only see part of her hand it is obviously that her playing style doesn't match the notes being played.
